It is Sydney’s answer to the Hamptons. Once popular with the overseas market thanks to Home and Away (they fondly called it Summer Bay), Palm Beach (or Palmy to the locals) has become a summer getaway for the rich and famous. You’ll find A-listers, influencers and captains of industry converging on its pristine shore.
